Golden Fleece, Phaistos Disk PictographI moved to St. Augustine, Florida to complete a twenty-year quest to reveal those other pictographs. Finding this pictograph fulfilled my quest because it was the last major pictograph I found. Maybe I excavated it last so I would know to stop digging because I had gone full circle. Excavate this pyramid by connecting with lines the 10 Golden Fleece pictographs (left) on Side 1. Suddenly appears the Great Pyramid with a view of the interior showing the outline of the entrance leading to the subterranean chamber, where I explored with those people.


INTERIOR OF THE GREAT PYRAMID


Interior Great PyramidInterior Pyramid, Phaistos Disk

Is another Phaistos Disk hidden beneath the Great Pyramid in the Subterranean Chamber?

Finding the pyramid solved the mystery of how I got there. As I slept I was like Alice through the rabbit hole into wonderland, passing through that little door to somewhere else in consciousness, where dreams are animated events in our lives and we experience them as reality.

Two Phaistos Disk pictographs seem related to the Great Pyramid, the tip of the "y" marking the location of the door leading to the subterranean chamber below.


Cheops Kephren

Triangle/VolcanoAngle/Pi

Cheops is compared with Kephren's copycat pyramid. This disk pictograph may be the primitive symbol for Pi, 3.1416, to describe the properties of a circle. The short line of the symbol is the radius (r) of a circle and the long line is the diameter (d). The ratio of the circumference of a circle (c) to its diameter (d=2r) is a constant number called Pi, which equals c divided by 2r=3.1416.

Phaistos Disk spinning

Cave of Zeus/TunnelCrested Dancer Pictograph, Phaistos Disk

I excavated the spiraling tunnel I flew through to get there by connecting the fourteen Crested Dancers (left) on Side one. The image seems to imply spin, so I animated this Phaistos Disk image, just curious to see what might happen if I spun it clockwise 90 degrees four times.

It seems to be an idea from the Bronze Age of a mechanism, perhaps even the birth of the idea of a mechanistic universe - the disk of the world in motion - surmised perhaps from observations made at the Great Pyramid of the spiraling rotation of the stars. This is spinning much faster than the tunnel I flew through, but that's because I couldn't slow down the animation. In the ancient Minoan Dance of the Labyrinth, the outer ring of dancers move clockwise and the inner ring counterclockwise.

The triangle at the center appears to be spinning counterclockwise, a wagon wheel illusion that an ophthalmologist in Sweden tells me cannot possibly be done on a potter's wheel. But I think there were enough wagon wheels to go around in those days that perhaps the artist(s) observed the effect and tried to reproduce it via the disk, and observation of the effect of spin on pottery designs may have inspired it. Perhaps the artist(s), lacking gif animation software, envisioned how it would work if spun very fast. Whether it's the rotation of the stars or a wagon wheel illusion or a wormhole, here is something completely unique in the world, an ancient animated pictograph - a pictograph-in-motion.

The use of pictographs as place holders for geometry is incredibly inventive and is a clever space saving way of preserving content-rich concepts.




PHAISTOS DISK MAZE OF DAEDALUS

Jonas SkendelisJonas: What is your conclusion about it?

Claire Grace Watson, M.S.T.Claire: My very large conclusion is that the Phaistos Disk is a pattern recognition maze puzzle so brilliantly conceived that it may have been known to Bronze Age Crete and Egypt as (what we call) the Maze of Daedalus. It was created by a genius artist of the times, perhaps an artist so remarkable that we know him/her as Daedalus, the legendary inventor. If Daedalus ever truly existed, I think this is what was created.

These pages are very rich with material about Crete...and everyday life in Crete that mirrors the stars above. (S. Voronan, Otonet.gr)

The Phaistos Disk and the Maze of Daedalus originate in the exact place at the exact time, they are both seemingly unsolvable mazes, and they have other undeniable similarities. Daedalus became synonymous with creative genius of invention, and here is a most fabulous invention, a clay disk that can transport you to the interior of the Great Pyramid or to some place in your mind that can project that reality so convincingly that you really believe you are there :) Either way, you're there.

Was the disk intended as a portal or psycho-activating device or does it just work that way because of its brilliant design combining pictographs, spirals, geometry, astronomy and math? I think Daedalus might have had some similar dreamworld experiences when creating the disk as I had when solving it, and would have known its magic. Dreams and consciousness, stars and constellations, spirals, circles and geometry, these are the immortals, the unchangeables, the things that are the same for everyone no matter when or where you live. And when you focus on the disk, you can activate some kind of mechanism of consciousness that connects you with them, even transports you to them, to a group consciousness of people who contemplated these ideas.

The writer Claire Watson instead favours the esoteric interpretation, as if the disc would pick up a magnetic energy to form a sort of portal to the infinity, however towards knowledge. (Officine Preziosi)

Phaistos DiskI think there once were many more copies of the disk than the one we have left, that it was mass produced, and that at least one of those copies was placed in the subterranean chamber of the Great Pyramid. I think many people in that ancient world of Minoan Crete had their own personal copy of the Phaistos Disk, which was easy to carry because it was so small, just a little bigger than a CD, and it was durable and waterproof because it was fire-hardened instead of sun-baked. I think it might have been mass produced in an Egyptian pottery factory.

The disk puzzle probably worked like this. Both sides of the disk were impressed into the sand, creating an imprint of the maze puzzle (see the raised pictographs and spirals, left), and then onlookers would be challenged to solve it. It might even have been the Mediterranean Bronze Age equivalent of Rubik's Cube. (Note: This was written before I saw the Phaistos Disk in Crete. The pictographs are not raised but are etched into the clay. This method of impressing the disk into wet sand would have worked even better because the sand pictographs would be raised.)


Claire Watson's wondrous site is itself a marvelous instance. Those inclined to wonder about past and future ought to see it. (Arsen Darney, Ghulf Genes)

The artist(s) of the disk puzzle populated the spirals with pictographs as place holders for the hidden large pictographs (patterns), revealed when the matching pictographs are connected with lines, as in connecting points with lines in geometry and stars with lines in astronomy to produce constellations.

Golden Fleece, Phaistos Disk Pictograph Could this Phaistos Disk pictograph represent the Golden Fleece, centerpiece of the great Greek mythology Jason and the Argonauts? Connecting all 10 of them produces this pyramid with door, so if the Minoans knew of the myth then perhaps they originated it. And perhaps a part of it is long forgotten, the part about the Golden Fleece being hidden in the subterranean chamber beneath the Great Pyramid.

Triangle/VolcanoIcosahedron
Disk pictograph, an equilateral triangle with 20 dots inside, could symbolize the icosahedron, composed of 20 equilateral triangles and later to become known as one of the five Platonic solids. Or perhaps it represents the 20 people who convened inside the Great Pyramid and who created this artifact.


Phaistos Disk pictograph, Yoke
Phaistos Disk pictographs, telescope and binoculars? Telescope lenses were found in the sacred cave on Mt. Ida that are now housed in the Heraklion Museum in Crete. Perhaps the lenses were used by the Minoans to study the stars at the Great Pyramid, as seen on the Phaistos Disk.
